Why slip and fall injuries can be costly

July 27, 2015

Many people consider “slip and fall” injuries minor and not something that should warrant legal action — until it happens to them. In fact, falls can result in serious neck and back injuries, broken bones and other problems that require medical treatment and sometimes, physical therapy and rehabilitation.

Indoor injuries can occur when property owners fail to keep their floors dry or to repair problems with stairs and flooring. Here in New Jersey, property owners may also be held liable if they fail to keep their exterior areas cleared of snow and ice or to repair potholes in their parking lots.

Slip and fall injuries are not limited to older people. Children and young people in school may also be at risk if the school is not properly maintained. There is a large volume of walking traffic around school grounds on any given day. That’s why all areas of a school, from kindergarten to university level and everything in-between, need to be properly maintained. This includes interior floors, entrances and exits, sidewalks and parking lots.

Many New Jersey students will be entering a new school this fall. Whether it’s a grade school, high school or college, they will be maneuvering hallways, stairwells and outdoor areas that are unfamiliar to them. This can increase the risk of a slip and fall injury.
